We can help by providing periodic maintenance to skillfully clean all the parts and check for potential problems.
PTAC problems, solutions
Lighthouse HVAC also can repair any problems with a PTAC:
• Frequent starts and stops
• Leaky or “spitting” systems
• Frozen coils
• Compressor problems etc.
Don’t neglect the problem; your utility bill will only climb while the system labors harder and does a less satisfactory job.
Modern technology is making PTACs stronger and quieter, even more reasons to install them in rooms that need to be more comfortable.
Installation isn’t as simple as 1-2-3. You may need to cut a hole through a wall or wrestle it onto a window sill, and you will need to attach a wall sleeve and an external grill whether you buy an electric or heat pump PTAC. Lighthouse techs can do the job for you quickly and expertly, and we guarantee our work!
PTAC units also have become more energy efficient, which is good for the environment as well as your budget.
Heat pump vs. electric
Which PTAC system is better for you?
It depends on how you plan to use it.
Generally speaking, electric is better for New Yorkers who plan to use their PTAC for heating as well as cooling. The heat pump works better for summer cooling.
Allergyandair.com, which focuses on home heating and cooling products, notes that heat pump PTACs “usually cost more upfront to the tune of around $60 or $70. That higher upfront cost pays off in energy efficiency though, so you can expect to save a little on your electric bills for the life of the unit.”
Yet heat pump models aren’t as strong as electric PTACs when it comes to heating a room in a New York winter.
